Brooklin 1960 Cadillac Series 62 6-window Sedan

Brooklin 1960 Cadillac Series 62 6-window Sedan

While the 1959 Cadillac was the flashiest ever built, a 1960 facelift made the car much smoother and less flamboyant, with a full-width grille, toned-down chrome, and smaller fins.  Brooklin has released this very impressive model of the top-line Cadillac sedan, the Series 62 Six-Window. The body’s lines match photos from all angles, and Brooklin has combined the use of their new chrome-plated wire side and fender trim with the plated “birdcage” roof and window frame casting to create an almost fully detailed model with fine scale fidelity and an excellent two-tone paint job. All the trim is plated except for the front fender badges (missing, here) and over-painted fin caps; the “Pelham Blue” and “Olympic White” colors match paint chips very well.  Inside, the upholstery patterns are correct, and the door panels have arm rests but no handles, cranks or trim. The plated dash center section and instrument cluster are equally accurate, but the relief-cast faces and details haven’t been picked out. There’s been some criticism of the fin height in some circles, but we’re thinking that’s the result of lens-distorted photos online.  As far as we’re concerned, Brooklin has the lines just right.  – Wayne Moyer
